Antique vs. Modern: Which Furniture Pieces Truly Honor You?

When people are challenged to create something that is in complete harmony with the essence of their soul, it becomes evident how complex and unique they truly are. Yes, we all see the world around us with different eyes, which means that we all find beauty in different places. If you carefully think about it, you will realize how astounding is the fact that all of us reveal bits of our deepest self with every single object we own, no matter how large or tiny it is. This is exactly why we pay so much conscious and unconscious attention to the clothes we wear or to the décor of our residence.

Ah, yes, everyone enjoys the process of bringing to life the space (s)he calls home. Although the number of interior design styles and ideas is constantly growing, it all comes down to choosing one of the two main decorating directions – the antique or the modern one. Now, I know that it goes without saying that we are totally free to combine all of the furniture items and interior design elements we like until we are fully satisfied with the outcome. As long as our home, seen as a whole, represents us in a tasteful way, it doesn’t really matter whether we picked period furniture pieces for our rooms, contemporary ones, or perhaps a smart mixture of both. This article respects the taste of both the lovers of everything antique and the ones of everything modern.

If you have always dreamed of living in a certain historical era, but you haven’t been able to travel through time yet, then I believe that you should start searching for antique furniture online. The Internet is full of reputable shops for majestic, one-of-a-kind and high-quality period furniture pieces and other objects that will help you turn your living room into a stunning replica of an 18th century English, French, or Italian living room. There is also a wide selection of beautiful Chinese and Indian wooden antique furniture online, such as dining, coffee and bedside tables, as well as exquisitely detailed cabinets and sideboards for the ones who are enchanted by the traditional Asian home décor. The only thing that I would like to warn you about is to be extremely careful when combining items that are inspired by different geographical regions and/or historical periods, since this is where many people, including professional interior designers, have made some unforgivable and quite silly mistakes.

On the other hand, if you believe that modern, minimalist and elegant pieces of furniture are precisely what you are looking for to help you express yourself, then I advise you to visit several furniture showrooms near you, so you can see what’s trendy and valuable today. My favourite contemporary home design is the one that incorporates soft wall colours, sleek faux leather or fabric sofa set, and plenty of watercolor paintings.

When it comes to selecting the right furniture items for you, all you need to do is follow and honor the home décor enthusiast inside you. Now off you go and have a happy shopping day!
